Listen! the wind is rising,
and the air is wild with leaves.
We have had our summer evenings,
now for October eves.

Just wanted to write a quick blog on the Common Ground Fair
hosted by MOFGA here in Maine this past weekend.
The Northern Solstice Alpaca Farm where we had our booth were wonderful to us
and of course the Alpacas are just amazing magical creatures ..

The children of Maine were amazing and inquisitive and loved to ‘sniff’ the smelly stuff.!
It was a joy for me to introduce them to essential oils and watch the look of wonder on their faces.!!

And to Kristyn and Chuck thank you for all your hard work
and making this possible event possible for SunRose!

Quote ~
The harvest moon hangs round and high
It dodges clouds high in the sky,
The stars wink down their love and mirth
The Autumn season is giving birth.
Oh, it must be October…

Summer of 2015 ~ Brook all dried up www.SunRoseAromatics.com

The season is changing …and Im loving the Fall Season ..
the falling leaves and beautiful colors!
Though we had such a very dry summer ..
the brook was all dried up.
We finally got some big rains today ..
and yes I am grateful.!

End Quote ~
October’s the month
When the smallest breeze
Gives us a shower
Of autumn leaves.
Bonfires and pumpkins,
Leaves sailing down —
October is red
And golden and brown.

Wishing you a joyous Autumn. til next time, Rosanne

September 25th, 2013,
we made the journey and permanent move up to our farm here in Belmont Maine.

Yes, a dream come true for both us.

Elderberry Field - the beginnings www.SunRoseAromatics.com

Moving the garden ‘stone people’ (statuary) was the first move in September 2012.

Lions and Fire Pit oh my

Then once the house was sold .. we had to move SunRose and our personal household.

The ‘Delancey Street Movers’ were amazing and I would highly recommend them.
They were understanding (stress of moving home and business),
and efficient and not one broken item .. NOT one.

The transformation here is amazing from the cleared out driveway,
to the patio / fire pit, the new bedroom / living .. which is on the first floor ..

getting the chickens that we lovingly call the ‘girls’ (11 of the girls) ..

And of course with joy comes some sorrow .. the ebb and flow of life ..
We lost my beloved Pup Sasha Feb 2014
and then 2 weeks later lost Mama Coco my sweet kitty from the Bronx House of Detention.

Enter Conan our German Shepherd puppy .. who is truly a joy in our life!
wow .. and we did survive puppyville .. a challenge I tell ya.!!

Conan is 16 months old here .. our baby puppy. www.SunRoseAromatics.com

Chuck lost his Mom Febuary of this year 2015 and she is very missed ..
and the rythmn of life goes on ..

Thank you for following our progress here on the farm. Sharing in our joys and yes sorrows ..

Our orchard is getting established. Our Elderberries seem to be thriving ..
with the help of Teddy Mattson his forte is permaculture.
He is really a blessing and helping shape the farm crops for us.

Hoping next year to have herbs,
elderberry tinctures and dried elderberries
to sell on SunRose.
So stay tuned to the future happenings here.

Life is a journey for sure .. each and every day a treasure.
I am so very grateful and so very blessed to be living here
on this amazing land with my life partner ..
he has made this incredible move easier for me.
And sharing life with him has been a true adventure.

We will be at the Common Grounds Fair / MOFGA this year .. our first ..
and hopefully, not our last.!
Look for us at the Northern Solstice Alpaca Farm.
There will be a ‘sniffapalooza’ going on ..
AND you get to meet these amazingly beautiful creatures ..
